I'm going off of commentary I've read about him over the past years, but that's the example that stuck in my mind. It's possible to be gay and still say hateful things about someone else's sexuality.

So yeah, take out the "homophobic" part of my rant if you want, maybe that wasn't the appropriate term, but he's still a douchebag.

I was going to say that Perez is an idiot, and he well may be, but he's also a genius at commodifying himself, as well as creating and expanding his brand.

If only that power were used for good.

"Homophobic" may be questionable, but "douchebag" is dead on. Good call, cori.

This is a comment I read. Hardly the only one, there have been many similar comments. And many who say she concocted this whole thing herself (or her parents did) as a publicity stunt.

Because she exploits herself she can't be exploited? And her personal conduct, style of dress, and her parents have anything to do with a picture being distributed of her that's legally child porn. How her parents have wronged her is an entirely different issue. I've never seen Demi Moore's 15 year old daughter in any racy outfits or lap dances or lesbian kisses-so she would have more of a legit complaint? Child porn is child porn-no matter what the child looks like, says, or does. The fact that Miley is looking and acting much more like an adult than a child these days is not relevant to what Perez Hilton did.

"Anyone else find it disturbing that this is being labeled as 'child pornography'? There are serious issues the world over with children being exploited...Miley Cyrus exploits herself.

I recognize it may have been a stupid and "illegal" thing to do but by getting up in arms over what amounts to a horribly bad publicity stunt on BOTH their parts undermines everything that is being done to prevent real exploitation and abuse. Everything seems to suggest that this girl (whose T & A & "lesbian kisses" seem to be all over the news) has been more wronged by her trashmonger parents for letting her "express" herself like a hooker in public. "

I dont want to get started on Miley but I kind of agree with the last comment. She's 17 and she's dressing like a hooker, of course she's going to be photographed and made fun of. So I guess in 5 months when she's 18 it will be ok to put up pics of her crotch?

Absolutely agree with this. This is separate from my feelings about Miley herself (or Paris or Britney or whoever else had similar incidents), but that line of thinking "oh, she wanted that picture to be taken" is too close to "she was asking for it" for my liking.

Going around without underwear is not an invitation to have someone shove a camera up your skirt. Or at the door when you're awkwardly getting out of a car.

So yeah. Just reeeeeeeeeeeally uncomfortable with that line of thinking.

No comment about Miley and her ongoing shenanigans particularly. Just wanted to put that out there.

If she was 18, we could still talk about how shitty the paparazzi are to be taking those pictures, but there wouldn't be a legal issue about potential child pornography.

Legally in five months yes, he could do that. Vanessa Hudgens didn't have the Miley reputation and wasn't dressing like a hooker and he did it to her. I just don't think there's any difference. He can make fun of Miley all he wants for dressing like a hooker if that's what he wants to do-he just can't link to what is legally child pornography.

I don't understand why nothing happened to him for the nude Vanessa Hudgens photos.

Didn't Vanessa send those pictures to someone via text, and that's how they got out? I wonder if that had something to do with it. No idea how that works.

Aren't there laws now that the teens themselves could be charged with child porn for "sexting" even if they take the pictures themselves? That they're the ones making and distributing child porn? I don't know how widespread those laws are.

A child choosing to exploit herself is one thing.

A culture enabling it is another.

I agree-and many of the comments I read basically said she deserves this for not wearing underwear.

It's not an exact analogy- but no matter how many guys a woman sleeps with or how she dresses, she can still be raped. I'm not at all equating rape with what is happening here-but legally it is child porn and ethically/morally I also don't think that any of Miley's personal background is any sort of defense for this whatsoever. If it was you could say that for any trafficker of child porn-they could just say that the kids were willing participants, acted older than their age, etc. which is what most of them already say to justify what they do.

That is just absolutely fucking ridiculous, and so beyond fathomable I can't even...ahh. Sigh. Anyone who thinks that this photo being put out was Miley's idea and a publicity stunt is a FUCKING imbecile and needs a lobotomy. I wasn't even going to post in this thread, but that sort of shit gets me riled up. I'm not talking to anyone in this thread specifically, because I don't think any of you have made this insinuation. I'm talking about the people who have speculated that it was a stunt or, even worse, are stupid enough to believe it. God dammit. And Perez Hilton is a vile toad. Nothing more.

these things always confuse people
if a white person is against civil rights legislation, he may be racist and labeled that way

I would rather trust an old white guy(1) with civil rights decisions
than an African American (2)

(1) Justice John Paul Stevens

(2) Justice Clarence Thomas

Then as a proud gay man, he shouldn't resort to flinging homophobic slurs at other people as an insult.

Bleeeeeeeeeeeah, I just can't stand that putz.

 
I KNOW THIS COMES AS A HUGE SHOCK.
